Meteorologist, Elizabeth Klarer caused an international controversy with her claim of a contact with Extraterrestrials.
Her book "Beyond the Light Barrier", written more in the style of a romantic novel, caused a rather skeptical response, since Klarer claimed she became pregnant after her encounter with a tall, white-haired spaceship-pilot.
Only in the Nineties, when cases of pregnancies after UFO abductions were given attention by serious researchers, the Klarer case received a more serious attention.
Indeed Cynthia Hind, Africa´s most respected UFO researcher and MUFON representative, managed to locate and interview several eyewitnesses of Klarer´s contacts.
Furthermore, Klarer was a well-respected member of the South African society. Her husband was a major of the South African Air force, Elizabeth herself worked for the Air force Intelligence.
